Hero Saw Bleak Outlook
for World Opinion of Israel

A prophetic glimpse at
how much of the world has
come to regard Israel was of-
fered by Yonatan
Netanyahu, the slain hero
of the 1976 Entebbe rescue
mission, in a portion of a let-
ter written prior to the
Six-Day War.
The letter was recently
published in "Self Portrait
of a Hero," a collection of
Netanyahu's corre-

they were already in the
pot, each of them was
allowed a last wish. The
Englishman asked for
whisky and a pipe, and got
them. The American asked
for a steak and got it. The
Israeli asked the chief of the
tribe to give him a good kick
in the backside.
"At first, the chief re-
fused, but, after a lot of
argument, he finally did
it. At once the Israeli pul-
led out a gun and shot all
the cannibals. The
American and the
Englishman asked him:
" 'If you had a gun all the
time, why didn't you kill
them sooner.' "
" 'Are you crazy,' an-
swered the Israeli, 'and
have the UN call mean ag-
gressor?' " •
